    Dear Family of Karen Hiller.
    Sending you all my deepest sympathies and heartfelt condolences on the passing of your mother. I remember your Mom as she and your father were friends of Ruth & LeRoy Welbig when I was in high school (a long time ago) in Dell Rapids. She had a great wit and had many humorous comebacks to a bunch of teenaged kids (and occasionally Ruth!) She also shared my mom’s birthdate. Godspeed Karen, Godspeed!

    Sorry to learn about Karen’s passing. I graduated from high school with Ed. When I was a senior, my mother was in the hospital after Thanksgiving until right before Christmas. We did not have the house decorated for Christmas at all. One evening about 10 days before Christmas, just as my mother came home, Karen and Jim and their family came over with a Christmas tree, and decorated it. What a great act of kindness! My family was deeply appreciative, and will never forget that kindness. God bless you Karen, and my condolences to the Hiller family.

    So sorry to hear this. I went to High School with Ed. ( I was Tracy Overvaag then.) It’s especially hard to lose your Mother. Prayers of peace and comfort to Ed and his family.
